Always in My Thoughts

Hello! Happy Wednesday. 

We have a new feature at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and we're calling it "W"ednesday.  Basically, every Wednesday either Team A or Team B will be presenting cards/projects featuring those wonderful images from Wee Stamps or Wild Rose Studios.  You can hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog for more details.  And don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have came up with for your viewing! 

So this is what I have created ...

The sentiment I used was a freebie courtesy of Create With TLC.  Thanks, Paulette!
Colouring of the featured image was done with my Letraset markers--Promarkers and Pantone Trias. 

This beautiful Wee Stamps image of Sylvia Zet is called 'Hopeful'

This stamp is available from Magnolia-licious.  See the store's entire collection of Wee Stamps HERE.  Of course, you can also check out those adorable Magnolia stamps--both full size and mini ones--at Magnolia-licious.  And newly in the store are stamps for Wild Rose Studio.  

A reminder that the comments you leave on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and any/all of the DT gals' blogs will be entered into a draw for the Surprise Package Prize each week--only one comment per blog per post please.

Hi Norma
I love all your cards!! I was wondering if you could give me a demo or quick instruction on how to do your mottled background that you usually do behind your little magnolia images (I imagine with Copics). I would so appreciate it. or a web site to get some instruction? Thanks, Robin
